for the secretary of defense, panetta. now we are getting a better idea of which other officials might ten down and who might replace them. now the news from washington, dc. a lot chatter. what do we know? >> on the secretary of state front we know as confirmed by the state department spokeswoman, secretary of state, hillary clinton intends to lobby. u.n. ambassador susan rice is said to be a top question but there are questions whether the public role in the wake of the deadly benghazi attacks would impact her chance and senator john kerry who chairs the senate committee on foreign relations is considered a contender and although that would leave an open senate seat for the democrats, that may not be a dealbreaker. >> in their favor this election, they had elbow room by the number of seats they won and many thought they wouldn't win, have that two-vote majority so maybe the president is willing to take a chance. >>guest: last time it was left open by the death of senator kennedy it went to a republican who was defied on tuesday. over two term presidencies over world war ii it is rare if any ca
out and panetta is set to go out. can this administration handle that much emptiness so quickly? >> that's a good question, too. one likes to see absolutely no turmoil. i spent a lot of time in the banking business, and the way people made money was if there was turmoil. when things are quiet, they're much better for the average person, much more difficult for somebody who is trying to make money. what we don't want to see in government, particularly at a difficult time, is turmoil. under normal circumstances there is usually a change in the guard in the middle between the two administrations, the first and the second. frequently there's a change after two years and we're liable to see this again in the normal course of events. the president sometimes likes to change his team. this is an instance when a secretary of state said, i'll wait until you get somebody else and get him confirmed, but i'm leaving. a lot of other people will do the same, only because that's a standard. it's tiring to be in that business at the top of the apex. this is no different in that regard. the diffi
finding a replacement for defense secretary leon panetta, finding a replacement for secretary of the treasury tim geithner, all of whom, geithner and clinton, have already said they want to leave. it was reported on friday i believe on andrea's show that lee on panetta might want to go. when you have all of those people who are in senior positions within the administration all needing or wanting to go at the same time, having the cia director resign is not the optimal thing to have happen. >> as the late robin harris said, if you have to go, you got to go but going at this time simultaneously is problematic. in light of the fact that panetta and petraeus were seen as outsiders, they weren't organically grown from within, they didn't involve themselves over the years in the organizations they led, that was already a problem. this obviously at the very least is a major distraction at a time when the president needs to be focused on a crucial moment of negotiation with congress on the fiscal cliff with everything from tax revenue to military spending at the state. it seems to be
, leon panetta announces the pentagon is investigating general john allen nominated to be the european command and commander of nato forces in europe. for now that nomination is on hold. general allen is accused of exchanging thousands of inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley. >> it is simply a fact that is the white house was not aware of a situation regarding general petraeus until wednesday. >> greta: time for congress to man up and get the facts. four americans have been murdered in libya and the obama administration is still dragging its feet two months later still not telling the story. former director david petraeus knows about benghazi, two weeks ago he was in lib qa ya to conduct his own investigation of september 11th attack. should he be forced to testify before congress? we spoke to lindsay graham a short time ago. >> senator, nice to see you. congressman, they have written a letter tha saying a select committee to what happened in benz? >> john mccain and myself we will introduce a resolution asking the majority leader, mitch mcconnell to do a select committee. why do you
carrying secretary of defense leon panetta to australia. pentagon spokesman george little told reporters secretary panetta asked the white house to postpone general allen's appointment as supreme allied commander in europe. >> on sunday the federal bureau of investigation referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force, or i.s.a.f., in afghanistan. >> reporter: the matter involves 20,000 to 30,000 pages of information the f.b.i. delivered sunday to the pentagon's inspector general. one senior official says the documents include a couple of hundred e-mails between general allen and jill kelley, the same tampa socialite who triggered the petraeus scandal. the e-mails discovered in kelley's files date back to 2010 when allen served as deputy commander for u.s. central command in tampa. pentagon and f.b.i. sources have characterized the e-mails as "inappropriate" and "flirtatious." one senior official said, for example, kelley would write something like "saw you on television, you were terrific." allen woul
with jill, leon panetta delivered new comments on the scandal hours ago. is the defense department at the tip of the investigation and what's the latest here? >> well, we'll get to that vote of confidence by mr. panetta in a second, but really the main thing that seems to be now clear is exactly how this unraveled. and it all has to do with tampa where, of course, u.s. central command is located and jill kelley, whom you just saw there, she was involved as a volunteer. she's no diplomatic protection whatsoever, but she was involved as a volunteer dealing with international visitors in the military apparently. so she in this capacity gets to know general petraeus and also general allen. so he gets an e-mail, she gets e-mails. he warns her that he's getting these e-mails, this is jill kelley. and jill kelley goes to the fbi and that is how this all unravels. now, speaking of general allen, he, of course, is the top u.s. and nato commander in afghanistan. he was nominated as the supreme allied commander in europe. and that nomination is on hold. but secretary panetta said that they ha
and bags as they are wrapping up their investigation. >> defense secretary leon panetta on route to australia was the first top administration official to comment on the petraeus departure. >> i think he took the right step, and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all the challenges that face you, and have -- that personal integrity comes first and foremost. >> panetta a former cia director and the washington shuffle with panetta and clinton saying they want out of the second term. will john kerry now go to the pentagon? can susan rice be confirmed as secretary of state? and will nancy pelosi run for leader again? and what a welcome to washington the new class of congress arriving just in time for a classic d.c. scandal. and a different fall from grace, jon stewart, crowns himself the worst journalist in the world. >> anyone out there who thought i may have actual journalists instincts i give you a snippet of my interview. >> he loves serving, to be in the arena. i thought i was going to test him, he tested me, crushed his pelvis. he wanted to help me with
allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of no. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort of a follow-up to the last question, is this an unwelcome distraction at the time when he was just reelected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> i certainly wouldn't call it welcome. obviously as i said to ben that the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise, and he is very appreciative of general petraeus' remarkable service to his country, but the president is focused on the agenda that he believes is important for this country, that he has to carry out, working with lawmakers here in washington. and that includes as you know his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. and he is engage nothing meetings this week on those issues, on the issues of the approach we need to take to assure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it to continue to grow jobs. he is also continuously focused on his foreign policy a
really around the world as secretary of state hillary clinton and defense secretary leon panetta both say our nato's allies aren't worried this investigation will hurt our mission in afghanistan in any way. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit
current job as the man in charge of the war and we heard from secretary panetta off the pentagon and also jay carney, the white house spokesman today. he's kept the confidence of the president and secretary panetta. so he will keep his job. the war will go on as it has for the past 11 years. >> jennifer: okay. since the president and secretary panetta issued a supportive statement does that indicate his denial checks out? general allen has denied, of course, having an inappropriate relationship with jill kelley. >> what a lot of people here in town think it means is that if he broke some form of protocol or some military guideline, it wasn't enough to trigger a criminal investigation by the fbi or by other federal officials and so that's the reason the justice department and the fbi handed this matter over to the pentagon's suspected general for it to look into it. that still could have serious repercussions for general allen. by keeping him on, by not suspending him as they have other general officers accused of crimes
on benghazi . leon panetta said there was not enough warnings to save the four americans murdered fighting for their lives in libya. >> steve: the defense department needs to know in advance when bad stuff happens. not making that up. >> brian: chairman paul ryan telling americans he will go back to work. >> i am house budget chair and it is part of my job to make this divided government work. >> brian: you can hear the disappointment. the former vp revealing what he will do next and going through election day with mitt romney. "fox and friends" starts right now. >> gretchen: you it is a good day when the floor crew is humming our theme song. >> brian: only one they know. >> gretchen: welcome everybody. petraeus scandal appears to be getting bigger . this is a made for movie situation already. >> brian: it is a movie i don't want to see. >> gretchen: certainly more details coming out. it is many things and now another top commander in afghanistan. general john allen who took over for david petraeus when he kebecame commander in afghanistan. he is under investigation for exchanging thousand
contact between general john allen, and jill kelley. yesterday, secretary panetta asked that john kelley -- or john allen's nomination to be the head of nato be pulled back and put on hold while the inspector general starts to dig through all of these pages to find out exactly what happened. here's how it all connects. general john allen was stationed in tampa when he was at u.s. central command. so was general david petraeus. jill kelley worked as sort of a social liaison with a lot of the commanders there. in fact, she's been -- won awards for her work with some of the military families, and the military down there. now, paula broadwell started e-mailing jill kelley. and from what we know, some of those e-mails basically took the tone of, you know, stay away from david petraeus, sort of, i know sort of your relationship with some of these other generals, it's inappropriate. at the time it didn't make sense. because what we've been told is, david petraeus and jill kelley are family friends. that david petraeus and his wife holly have spent time with jill kelley and her husband. that the
of the attacks in benghazi. defense secretary leon panetta made it clear he is ready for retirement. senator john kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops an

, as well. and also new this morning, defense secretary leon panetta is now asking whether the ethics training programs for military leaders are actually doing their job. and now he's ordering a review of the programs that are currently in place, just to find out if they're adequate. in a memo to the joint chiefs chairman, martin dempsey, secretary panetta said this, and i quote, "i seek your views on how to better foster a culture of value-based decisn-making and stewardship among senior generals and flag officers." cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly joins us now with more on the story. this is a request that perhaps may not have come to many as a surprise, suzanne. the microscope is blazing, and my assumption is, and i don't know what your sources are saying, they just don't want to screw anything up in this investigation. >> yeah, well, not only that, but you know, the broadening the culture, ashlie, as you mentioned with this memo is looking to see just how far something like this might spread. we certainly never expected to hear general allen's name pulled into anything

. the current defense secretary is leon panetta. he used to run the cia where he was succeeded by general petraeus. now that seat is also available. the same administration sources talking to "the post" also tell ing that the job is his. the job has made his desire to leave public service, but if he does reconsider, apparently the cia chief job should be his. if mr. brennan decides he does not want the job, the current acting director michael morell looks likely to keep the job. we'll have more on the questions surrounding the petraeus scandal and his abrupt departure later on in the show with a reporter who broke the story, andrea mitchell. >>> beyond the shape of president obama's second term administration and who is in his cabinet, we now know that president obama has scheduled a major meeting for tomorrow in washington with labor leaders. that will be on tuesday and then on wednesday the president is going to be meeting with a lot of ceos and business leaders. the world of big business in some ways large and small chose mitt romney over president obama during this election season. th
.b.i. resulted in the petraeus affair being revealed. defense secretary panetta office notified the chairman of the house armed services committee that he referred the allen investigation to pentagon inspector general. >> while the matter is under investigation, and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commanderer. general allen is entitled to due to press in this -- due process in this matter. >> white house postponed the allen confirmation hearing to be the next supreme commander of europe slated for thursday and asked that thenate move quickly to appoint the next commanderer for afghanistan. allen, married, admitted he didn't have a sexual affair with kelly. petraeus and allen got to know jill kelley in 2010. allen was petraeus' deputy if tampa bay florida, where kelley is married to a surgeon and pension for hosting parties for top military brass. she used to shop with petraeus' wife holly. meanwhile, paula broadwell has hired an attorney. her father told the "new york daily news" that, "this is about something else entirely and the truth will come out." you wait an
there. >> you will get a swing at that. let me push back on this, a.b. leon panetta, at a news conference at pentagon several week ago said we knew about this. we had forces in the area. but the decision of general dempsey, head of joint chief, myself, general ham was that we coulden in the the time involved there move forces to the area. >> there have been conflicting accounts on what happened and whether or not the request was made, whether it was turned down. he says today for the first time my orders were. i don't know that he said he was doing that night and what transpired in those seven hours. in terms of what was -- >> we did know he met because they were already there for a meeting. meeting with top officials. >> but he has not explained how the hours unfolded. what you see right now is a focus on capitol hill on david petraeus. they are hoping for a lot of clarification from his testimony. i think what you also see because, you know, there was no reporter asking today could you walk up through the seven hours on september 11? you will see a lot of heat on hillary clin
term. secretary of defense leon panetta put out a statement about this statement, saying that while the matter is under investigation, and before the facts are determined, general allan will remain as commander. "his leadership has been instrumental in the significant progress that has been made in bringing greater security to the afghan people and making sure that afghanistan never becomes a safe haven again for terrorists. he is entitled to due process in this matter." that was the statement from leon panetta about general allan. also in the news, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee said yesterday that she would put out a subpoena for the general's testimony, if need be. she said she would go as far as to order a vote on the floor of the senate if the administration does not cooperate. part of the hearings that the intelligence -- intelligence committee will be holding later this week. the house foreign affairs committee also has a hearing, although the intelligence proceeding hearings will be closed. this is a look at who is testifying this morning from "the washi
at this moment? bill: the last man to head the cia was leon panetta. petraeus took over from him when he took the job as defense secretary. now panetta was asked about the situation on his way overseas late last night. roll this. >> first, obviously it was a, it was a very sad situation to you know, have a distinguished career like that end in this manner, and my heart obviously goes out to him and to his family but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all of the challenges that face you in that position that, you know, that personal integrity comes first and foremost. bill: so secretary panetta was also asked by reporters if the fbi should have alerted key members of congress about the investigation sooner? panetta saying that is something that should be looked at. martha: well the fbi is now preparing a timeline of its investigation to respond to lawmakers who think that they were told too late. this is it what we know so far according to a senior member of the obama administration. on wednesday the director of national intelligence
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state
here. >> general allen says he did nothing wrong. however, the pentagon panetta spokesperson last night said this involves 20,000 to 30,000 documents. that's a lot of documents sent between two -- two years between jill kelley a civilian woman, and top general in afghanistan. doesn't that raise red flags? >> well this is from 2010 to 2012. so it covers a couple of years. they're not documents the way we consider documents. these are e-mails going back and forth. if you see the way people blackberry with their iphones and text back and forth, it's still a lot, but i think what they did is -- >> is it normal for jill kelley - in florida to have -- >> she isn't your average housewife in florida. erin moriarty will get into that later. she is a major figure around the central air force base mcdill air force base. >> and in washington as well. >> that, too. she's going fo visit petraeus in washington at the cia and petraeus is telling this to broadwell. and broadwell and he have just broken off. you can watch the wheels turning there. she's thinking did he throw me o
is postponed. the head of nato is still backing allen and defense secretary leon panetta speaking overnight in australia also offered some guarded support. >> no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isaf, in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are. >> reporter: that caution was he can owed at the white house. >> it's an accurate statement that president still has faith in general allen? >> he has faith in general aln, believes he is doing and has done an excellent job. >> yejay carney was peppered wi questions over shadowing the president's second term. >> he's not going to make a grand pronouncement or decisions about things based on two situations, two individual cases. >> reporter: meanwhile among the hundred hundreds of e-mails exchanged between general al sben kelley, investigators are focusing on one from several months ago. in it, allen told kelley he just received an anon
this morning. literally announced mid flight to reporters traveling with defense secretary leon panetta to australia. >> on sunday, the federal bureau of investigation referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force, in afghanistan. >> reporter: the allegations against general allen are said to involve messages written from 2010 to 2012 between the general and jill kelley, the same tampa socialite who received threatening e-mails from the lover of general david petraeus. when asked if the e-mails between allen and kelley were of a sexual nature, a senior defense official wouldn't be specific, but did say, "they are potentially inappropriate, and they bear looking into. the department is currently reviewing between 20,000 and 30,000 documents connected to this matter." allen, a married four-star marine general, took over from petraeus as the top american commander in afghanistan in july 2011. he told pentagon officials he's done nothing wrong. allen was in line to become supreme allied commander for eur
